Tea for Two Additions and Garden Variety Birthday

Hi Friends!  I am back from vacation and could not wait to get into my craft room to make a birthday card with those super cute teacups my PTI forum friend Joyce (rachnsarahsmom) sent me while I was away.  She was so nice to stamp a great big variety of colors of teacups and teapots for me.  As I was trying to decide which image to use on my card, I realized that the stems and flower images from Garden Variety fit absolutely perfectly within the teacup.  It is such a perfect fit, they look like they were made for each other.  I used a kraft card base which I stamped with the Impression Obsession Cover a Card Greenery stamp.  This stamp looks so much like the patterned paper from PTI "Green Tea Leaves", it was just the perfect subtle backdrop for my focal image.  For the focal image, I used the PTI spiral notebook die to cut some Vintage White cardstock, stamped the sentiment from Wildflower Garden and the branches and flowers from Garden Variety.  I popped up the teacup Joyce sent me and added a few little butterflies, one popped up and a slightly larger one on the kraft cardbase.  Joyce was also nice enough to send me some of the Green Tea Leaves paper (I liked it so much, the paper pack is now sitting in my PTI cart just waiting for me to press "Order").   I used a scallop border punch to cut a little of the Green Tea Leaves paper and wrapped some twine and a button around it.  My card still needed a little something along the bottom, so the sentiment was stamped using another Garden Variety stamp.  This card turned out exactly how I pictured it and I love it!  Thanks, Joyce for the cute tea cup and paper you sent me.  I bet I use every single one of them.

Love what you did with the goodies I sent you. Those flowers are perfect with that tea cup. You have my mind spinning now about possibilities. This could be a fun game to play--start with the same ingredients, and see where we end up. Your card is so different from mine, and I just love it.

WOW!! I love this card!! I'm going to Pin it right now. Love, love, love it!! That tea cup is so sweet with those gorgeous flowers peeking out of it. I never had any interest in the Garden Variety set but I do love those flowers. Is $24 too much to pay for one stamp?! ;)That OI stamp has been on my radar for a while now. Thanks to you! Paired up with PTI's tea leaves paper is pefection! Such a great card. I can stare at it all day!!
